Process of creating wedding flowers

May 2012
This week we let you in on some of the tricks of trade as we talk you through the steps we went through to create Amanda’s country garden themed wedding pieces:

Bridal Bouquet
Flowers and Ribbon are choosen to compliment the brides theme for her wedding and the bridesmaids dresses.
Flowers are removed from packaging and gathered into groups, their stems are then stripped of excess foliage and thorns.
One by one stems are gathered in a spiral arrangement as each stem is placed at an angle, large dominant button holeflowers are distributed evenly and gaps are filled with foliage.
Stems are then secured in place with twine and the twine is then covered in coordinating ribbon.
A bow is added if requested and the Bouquet is now complete
Name tags are prepared to avoid confusion!

Buttonhole
The stem of the main flower for the buttonhole is stripped and a wire pushed through the stem to give strength, the stem and wire is then covered in floristry tape, beginning at the base of the flower head and winding downwards in a diagonal direction.
The sepal is then pinned to the rose head with wire to prevent the flower from opening as the day progresses.
Foliage is also wired in the same way to give strength.
Stems are grouped into position and then secured with florist’s tape and covered with decorative wire, the Buttonhole is then labeled and ready to be delivered.
